It's a bug; the inspector hasn't been updated yet (it's been reported 
and will be fixed.) For now, you can add those files manually via a 
short script or the message box:

    set the stackfiles of this stack to <whatever>

The "<whatever>" should be a list of stacks, one stack per line, with 
two items in each line. The first item is the short stack name, and the 
second item is a relative path to the stack file on disk. See the 
"stackfiles" entry in the docs for specifics.
